Donations to Slough's homeless

We are opening Arbour Park to Slough’s homeless on Sunday 22 December, providing food, showers and haircuts. We have enough volunteers for the day, but are still taking donations of essential items. Please bring items along to Arbour Park and leave them with Mark Bailey – ask for him behind the bar in the main stand.

Food & drink

The bar and kitchen area on the first floor of the West Stand, and the tea bar on the ground floor of the West Stand will be open to all supporters, selling a range of hot and cold food and drinks.

The main bar will be serving until 19:30 (bar open till 19:45) due to the Trust Christmas draw, and we will also be showing Barnet vs AFC Fylde on BT Sport. We will also be showing Everton vs Chelsea before the match for any early birds.

We will also have a second tea bar open on the East Stand side, selling hot drinks, cold drinks, snacks and rolls.

The Club Shop will also be open for the final time before Christmas, so make sure you pick up gifts for friends and family! We are selling a pack of five Rebels-themed Christmas cards for just £5.
